This page is marked for cleanup because a full contents list with numbers of voices would be good, with links to whatever individual pages IMSLP has, also better links to all the composers involved.

  • According to the contents, most are for 3 voices, one for 2 voices, two for 4 voices, and a couple that have no designation for how many voices. Also, "the loss of two folios (before f. 1 and between ff. 63v and 64), however, has made two songs incomplete."
